How Do You Plan On Re- Emerging When This Is Over?

How do you want to reemerge when this is all over?

That has really been on my mind a lot lately.

I mean really. What else is there to do besides sit and think? Lol

I get mixed conversatins when I speak to different people about what is happening in the world right now.

50% are scared straight and the other 50% see this time as a blessing, and are adjusting accordingly.

My numbers would probably look different if I had cable.

I got a glimpse of the news the other day, and I would be living in constant fear, if I watched that everyday.

I say all this to say,

This time that we are in, WILL NOT last forever.

You will come out of this, but how?

This time is exposing a lot about YOUR life!

Some of you may be realizing that

You no longer want to be in the career that you are in because of the essentialness of your position

or

You may realize that you are enjoying the time you are able to spend with your family and friends, and want that freedom to continue once this is all over

or

You may realize that after spending 3 months of time cooped up in the house with your partner, that you are just not that in to them. lol

What is being exposed in your

Finances..Relationships..Career..Living Situation..Life!

No matter how big or small, this time is and will continue to be transformational for us all.

Pay attention to the transformations you are being exposed to and continue to GROW through what you GO through!

Design the Right Business For YOU in 5 Simple Steps!

Let me share a secret with you that no one never ever told me, or maybe they did, and I just didn’t believe them lol.

Design the Right Business For YOU in 5 Simple Steps!

Let me share a secret with you that no one never ever told me, or maybe they did, and I just didn’t believe them lol.

Being an entrepreneur requires a lot of time.

Some entrepreneurs, especially when they are starting out, spend 16+ hours building their business a day.

Are you about that life?

I believe you are!

I want to share a 5 steps process with you that will support you in engaging in a development process that you will ENJOY, because I have seen and heard stories of people who spend all this time developing businesses that brings them no joy!

Use the following steps to prevent that from being you!

Step 1: You need pen, paper, & your sacred design space.

Putting your pen to paper is KEY when manifesting greatness. Anything not written down is a DREAM. Once you write your dream down, you are developing your PLAN!

Step 2: Write down all the things that you like to do. Try to come up with at least 20 things.

Engaging in the process will get the wheels turning in your head! Once you identify 20 things that you like, explore each thought and think of ways in which you can make money off of that idea.

Step 3: Think about life as a child. What were you good at? What businesses/ entrepreneurs were around you that interested you growing up?

A lot of us try to bury our childhood memories for whatever reason. I want to challenge you to revisit your past and search for the good memories. What memories and feelings can you recreate in your adult life through your business? Think and reflect and see what comes up for you.

Step 4: Think about the goals of your business.

Is your goal to create impact, make money, or both. There is no right or wrong answer. Determining the goals behind your business will support you when developing the foundation of your business.

Step 5: Research the industry. What are the trends? How can you be different?

Do your research! After implementing steps 2-4, you should have a few business ideas written down that you can explore. Do your  research to see if those industries are projected be around and how will they fair within the next couple of years!

These 5 steps will support you in designing the right business for YOU!

If you need support in the process, schedule your clarity session today and allow me to DEVELOP YOUR GREATNESS through a 1 on 1 process.

Until next time……

Entrepreneurship is Freedom

Being an entrepreneur means many things to me, but most importantly, I equate entrepreneurship with FREEDOM.

Happy Monday!

Entrepreneurship is Freedom

Being an entrepreneur means many things to me, but most importantly, I equate entrepreneurship with FREEDOM.

Happy Monday!

Soooooo….

I have always been passionate about ENTREPRENEURSHIP and BUSINESS.

I enjoy it so much that I quit my 9-5 in November of 2019, to become a full time entrepreneur!

I wanted to control my time, my money, and my lifestyle.

I wanted to be in 100% control of me and I believed entrepreneurship could get me there.

Matter of fact, I knew it could, So I QUIT!

However, I realized when making the leap, that I wasn’t alone when it came to envisioning a life of freedom, and being my own BOSS.

There were and are many people who shared with me that they wanted to be their own boss and control their own time but they were too scared to take the LEAP!

Now, I am not judging anyone, because taking the LEAP is hard work, believe me, I know.

However, being scared is an excuse and that FEAR is preventing you from living in your greatness!

The last few days I have been meditating on personal stories that I can share with you that will MOTIVATE, INSPIRE, and ENCOURAGE you to take the LEAP, if you haven’t done so already!

I am not saying that you should or have to QUIT, like I did.

What I am saying, is that you should not give up on your vision of being your own BOSS!

You can do it!

Put a plan in place and get it done!

Over the next few weeks, I will be sharing my entrepreneurial journey with you.

From the beginning to the end.

It is my hope that by the end of our time together. You decide to take the LEAP, if god put it on your heart to do so.

You can be anything you want to BE!

You have greatness within YOU!

I Quit!

I know its been a minute. 2 weeks to be exact! I know its been a minute. 2 weeks to be exact!

Hey Developers!
I know its been a minute.
2 weeks to be exact!
Did you miss me?
I missed you for sure!
Allow me to explain my absence.
February 27th, I celebrated my 31st birthday. Yup, ya girl is 31 now. 
The week leading up to my birthday, I took some time to reflect and to really think about how I want to move forward in my life and in my business. 
After much thought, now I know how I want to show up and now I am ready to move in that direction.
So today, I am ready to announce that…
I QUIT!
When I started blogging around 2015, the goal was for me to document my journey.
Somewhere between then and now my purpose for blogging got muddy, and I found myself more so telling others what to do and how to do, but not sharing my story on this journey to my personal definition of successand I’m ready to change that. 
Being on social media and comparing myself to others really stifled my personal growth and my God designed purpose for my online platform.
I QUIT!
I QUIT comparing myself!
I QUIT doing things the way others do it!
I QUIT not valuing my own personal experience!
So please allow me to reintroduce myself.
My name is Antinette . I am a mom, entrepreneur , and a Black woman focused on SUCCESS!
I am passionate about seeing Black people, young and old, design and live their most succesful life.
To the people who follow me who are not Black, let me say, I love yall too! 
However, being a Black Women and having a Black son and daughter and seeing what is going on with Black people, it is only right that I do my part in ensuring that Black people know that they can be anything they think about and work towards. 
Periodt.
Moving forward, you can expect 
1.    More transparency from me
2.    Continued education and motivation from me that will support you in designing and living your best life

I am a real person and I’m going through real things and I’m overcoming them every day!
I want to share more of that.
It is my hope that you continue to grow along this journey with me.

P.S I would love to hear from you? What are some birthday rituals that you engage in to support you in having a successful year?

You can answer this question by responding to this email. 

Thank you & talk to you soon🙂

There Is No Ceiling!

I was talking to a group of middle school children the other day

There is no ceiling!

I was talking to a group of middle school children the other day about goals and how the goal is always to be better than the best!

To support them in overcoming the obstacles that they face when living a  goal driven life, I created affirmations and we repeated the affirmations as a group!

The first affirmation stated, “The goal is to be better than my parents”

Someone asked, as I hoped someone would, “What if you have the best parents in the world?”

My response, “You can still be better than them!”

This conversation caused me to think about the ceilings we place on our lives because of what we see or have not seen! Because of what we experience or have not experienced!

I am here to tell the person reading this today that THERE IS NO CEILING!

What is a ceiling?

I consider a ceiling to be two things,

  1. a self limiting belief
  2. the excuses we use to support us in staying in our comfort zones

What ceilings have you placed in your life that is preventing you from going to the next level?

Examine your money habits. Are your habits hurting or helping you? Do they support you in going to the next income level?

Have put on ceiling on the way that you manage and engage in your relationships? Are the teaching of your past preventing you from elevating to the next level of trust and respect in your relationships?

What beliefs do you have that are preventing you from having a career that you love and enjoy? What ceilings do you have in place that are preventing you from elevating to the next level?

Do you have any ceilings in place as it pertains to your leisure activity? When was the last time you did something for you?

What ceilings do you have in place regarding your health and fitness? What habits are preventing you from elevating that fitness goal that you have?

What ceilings do you have in place regarding who, what, and how you give? Giving without expectation  is crucial to your success!

4 Tips to support you in busting through ceilings

  1. Be willing to do something you haven’t done before.
  2. Be willing to identify the holes in your foundation and commit to fixing every nook and cranny.
  3. Be willing to speak up!
  4. Give more!

Thank you so much for taking the time to read “There is no ceiling”.

If you like what you read, take some time to watch the following video, where I discuss in detail what you have read!

Please, if you haven’t done so already, visit the “Ask Antinette” page and ask me anything! I will respond in my videos. I use this as a way to engage with my viewers!

Are You A Mom With Low Self Esteem?

Simply put, self-esteem is the way that you feel about YOU!

Are You A Mom With Low Self Esteem?

Simply put,  self-esteem is the way that you feel about YOU!

Every decision that you make come from how you feel about YOU!

I am asking MOMS this question because MOMs play a vital role in the household.

The way MOM feels matter! Whether it’s a two parent household or if MOM is doing it on her own. The way MOM feels matter!

No matter what, MOM is responsible for raising the next generation and producing healthy and whole children.

How is MOM going to take on this great role if MOM doesn’t feel good about MOM!

So I ask again,

“Are you a mom with low self esteem?”

The following questions support you in figuring out how good you feel about you!

  1. On a scale of 1-10, how good do you feel about you and your life right now? 1 (I hate my life right now) – 10 ( I love my position in life and would not change a thing)
  2. Are you sleeping on a dream that you have out fear of a negative outcome?
  3. Do you cuss at your children?
  4. Do you harshly punish your children?
  5. Are you involved with a partner who yells, cusses, or speaks down to you?
  6. Does your partner hit you?
  7. Do you often stay in relationships out of fear of being alone?
  8. Are you involved in a lot of casual sexual relationships?

If you said yes to any of those questions,

MOM it’s time for you to do what is best for you!

MOM, let me tell you about how I struggled with low self esteem for a good part of my life.

I know what it is like to look in the mirror and see disgust, shame, fat, imperfection and having those thoughts affect your life!

Not only does it affect your life, but once you decide to have children, it affects their life as well. You are literally teaching them about how they should feel about themselves.

As I said before, your decisions come from your self esteem!

You didn’t apply for that job because you do not feel good about your abilities!

You didn’t start that business because you do not feel confident about you and your abilities!

You didn’t leave that relationship that is no longer serving you because you do not feel good about you and somewhere deep inside, you feel like you deserve it or that you can find better!

MOM, its time for you to take a stand and decide today that you are going to do whatever it takes for YOU to feel good about YOU!

MOM, its time for you to show your children that they can be anything that they want to be because YOU had a dream and YOU made it happen!

I Got A Testimony……That I Can’t Keep To Myself!

I Got A Testimony......That I Can't Keep To Myself!

June 30, 2018 I got fired from my job. Two weeks before that I spent all of my savings and made the biggest investment of my life. I had just brought a mobile food cart. I was devastated. I did not see the loss of my job coming at all! My plan was to work both jobs.

Well, now I know why I got fired.  There was no way that I could do both.

The show must go on right……

Although I was broke broke, I had a community day where those who lived in the community were more than welcome to taste the food that I would serve during the remainder of the summer season. I made a lot of money that day. I opened in June and closed the first week of September and made enough money where I didn’t have to quickly look for a job.

Once the season ended, I began to look for employment. Although, I had enough money to sit on, I did not want my account go under a certain amount. I went on a million interviews, I did not get hired. I was really starting to think that I was not going to find a job. I mean every time I would interview for a position, the interviewers would say how they loved me and how I should be expecting a phone call and nothing happened. No call ever!!

The blessing in the mess…….

12/21/2018 I had an interview scheduled. At this point, I am like, “Whatever” not excited, I am just going to go. Well, how about this same day, my man gets admitted into the hospital. It was the worst thing I could have experienced in my life.

I pushed through and still went on my interview. When I got there, I met with director of the organization and we immediately clicked. I applied for a part time position because I knew once it gets warm, I wouldn’t NEED anything full-time. However, I am always open to an growing opportunity.

After talking with the director, it was evident that I could bring lots of value to the organization, so she created a fulltime position so that I would be able to receive benefits. I am literally getting paid to fulfill my life’s mission.

It’s a beautiful thing man.

I went from being fired to having a position created.

Won’t he do!

If you need support in creating your best life, contact me today!

Be blessed yall!
